Hi, There were no faults with the car, it had been dry stored for a few years and was put away in good condition. I was bringing it back onto the road, the timing belt had not been that changed long before it was put away. I was putting new brakes giving it a full service and would have been taking it for mot.
It had been run on a regular basis buit the fuel packed up. It wouldnt start after that but a quick clean of the injectors and some new seals and it purred. I had all stuff ready and went to start it to pull it a few feet forward and crunch lol. I have lots of new genuine parts and many good used spares that you just cannot find. ( leather interiod, door cards new center consol with working plastic hinges, parcel shelves, coil packs etc.
Mod wise it has had a K&n fitted about 2002, Devil decat and miltek exhaust about 2008. It has been lowered front and rear. It has 17inch team dynamics monza r's and spacers so it sits bang on. Custom casaba front strut brace. It has an uprated fuel regualtor. It has custom gauge setup of backlit gauges, vacuum, boost..... had planned for it and fuel pressure. It has a custom made rear spoiler that is a low level wrc type that does not look in your face.
Underneath its solid as it was always a second or third fun car so was garaged lots but also well cared for.
I was going to put a new heater matrix in as it was old and ocasionally their was a wiff of steam in vents but no loss of coolant. underneath was solid just a tiny bubble on one sill. Drivers seat had unfortunatly just worn through. Aircon would last for about 4 years before needing a top up.
It also has a great jvc flip style mp3/cd and mp3/cd changer fitted with the right bits so it worked through the steering wheel, jbl speakers, twin 12" subs and 3 amps, power cap etc.
I aslo have original manual, all original parts ( airbox thats not rusty) stereo etc, aftermarket cat and center section and original backbox only used for mot's. Original handbook reciepts and full history lol.
Im sure their is more but i cant remember, just heartbroken really but not prepared to throw more money back into it for rebuilding what was a cracking 70k original engine as it wont have the value there and 4K or whatever a boosted setup goes for is pointless.
